Most journals at WHSL are now only available electronically. However, some of the older journals are only available in print. In order to find out if WHSL has a journal, first check for it by using the e-journal finder in the box above. However, if the journal you want is not available elctronically, then check the catalogue for print holdings. Make sure that you change the drop down menu from Keyword to Journal Title before searching.
Note the LOCATION of the title you want. The Witwatersrand Health Sciences Library (location code WHSL) is at the Medical School on the entry level (Level 4) on the Parktown Campus.
Then note the SHELF NUMBER of the journal. This is the "address" at which the journal is physically housed on the shelves. Note: this location number may be different in different libraries, depending on which classification system is used.
Finally, note the STATUS of the volume and/or issue you want. The status may be ISSUED (ie. it has been taken out, and the date on which it is due to be returned should be reflected as DUE) or NOT ISSUED (ie. it should be on the shelf).
If you want to save your PubMed searches, receive emailed results from searches run to your specification, and keep up to date, you can use the My NCBI feature of PubMed. You will need to register and set your preferences. There is a good help feature available.
Alternatively, you can create an RSS feed from a search.
